Parents Visit Again!
Just wanted to post some pics from my parents' visit last month. We had such a great time...and, as usual, packed about two weeks of activities into just a few days.
We kicked off their stay with a trip to Ocean Beach...
And then a quick spin through Golden Gate Park.
The first night they were here, we had an amazing dinner at Delfina Pizzeria in the Mission...and then had to stop by Bi-Rite Creamery for dessert. Note to future visitors, Bi-Rite ice cream (arguably the best in the city) is not to be missed and we are more than happy to take you there! All the flavors are good, but the salted caramel is legendary. YUM. Mom and Dad worked off all the delicious dinners by exploring Point Reyes and renting bikes and riding over the Golden Gate bridge while we were at work.
We also went hiking in Muir Woods, which was so much fun.
We just missed all the wildflowers, but managed to spot a few...
...and some wildlife as well!
One thing that still amazes me about San Francisco--places like this are less than 20 min. from our apartment in the city!
Over the weekend we took a little road trip down to the central coast to visit family near Pismo Beach.
I hadn't seen Aunt Mill and Uncle Bill since I was a little girl and it was so nice to get reacquainted. Although I hadn't seen her in such a long time, Aunt Mill is so special to me...she made my blue blankie...which I still sleep with when Mike's out of town! She gave us a Christmas quilt that she made...I can't wait to pull it out for the holidays.
We also had fun picking gigantic lemons in their backyard...
Of course, no trip to the central coast is complete without hitting a few vineyards...
...and playing with vineyard dogs.
All in all a great trip!
